I love these guys! Tonight, the CK Gospel Choir are performing the Bill Withers classic Lovely Day.
Oh. I don’t know how this sounds in the studio, but the vocals are jarring. The harmonies sound awful, and the singer who sang lead at the start set them off badly. I think this might be the first serious train wreck of the night. Sorry to say that, but it’s how I feel.
It’s a shame when a band you love comes up with an arrangement that leaves you cold. These guys were much sharper the first time around.
Sharleen: Guys, you’re better than that. I don’t what you were doing. You’ve got ten vocals up there and all you were doing was layering it.
